Cozy-up with a cup of hot coco! Here it is - the long-awaited Curated Art Collection for this month. The theme is Cold As Ice and we are taking a look at some work that might make you shiver.

Artwork by Karine Molloy.

Today we feature artwork from the online portfolio of Karine Molloy. These works dazzle with their vivid hues and incredible movement. Karine's palette blasts retinas awake with a startling vibrance. Her abstracted paintings show many layers of application of colours but also layers of different types of mark making which I find to be interesting.

I recently had the pleasure of entertaining some guests from Women Art Wine, fantastic new organization that hosts studio visits with artists and helps connect female artists with female collectors. These types of groups are a phenomenal way to connect with people in the studio, giving them the opportunity to ask questions in a comfortable and casual setting. It is a remarkable way to have a direct connection with potential buyers…

Networking at Art Events can be daunting. Here are a few tips to help you on your way:

 

1. When you arrive at the event don't gravitate toward the person that you know right away. Strike up conversation with someone you don't know and stick to the plan of meeting some new people.

 

2. Ask a few questions to engage people and then shut up and listen. When you ask another question or add a comment try to use their name - it will make…

So you have great artwork and are getting recognition, now you just need sales..but it can be slow and bills don't pay themselves so what's a gal to do? One thing you can consider is creating a diverse range of art price points. Think about a menu with a range of items that suit people's individual needs. If someone can buy something from you at a low price point or a high price point then you are serving a wider audience. This gives…

There is an innate playfulness to this artists approach in sculpture. This video shows Chinese artist Li Hongbo creating his sculptures that seem to change state. They go from solid, classic, stone sculptures to a delicate accordion of air and paper. He seems to delight in his work and his passion for his chosen materials shines through. Despite the fact that the video shows how the work is created, no magic is lost for these…

"Semen Stains The Mountaintops" by Erin Rae.


Today we are looking at the online portfolio of artist Erin Rae. Her paintings seems to celebrate the nature and texture of paint and the impact of colour. Erin's work varies as it seems to sometimes embody a busy composition of marks and other times a pattern-like abstraction that highlights her choice of colours. I really love to see painters let loose with paint and Erin's work reminds…

Which are the most foreign to your creative practice? These rules were created by celebrated artist and educator Sister Corita Kent and popularized by the phenomenal artist, composer,…

Every Sunday we give you a behind-the-scenes tour into the heart of creativity, the artist's studio. This week we visit the art studio of the artist Picasso where the muse, Olga Khokhlova, is seated.  I love how she is surrounded by these huge portraits of herself, it's so odd! Must be just one of the unusual circumstances of being married to Picasso.
